Juan Luis lived in Leon Mexico with his wife and two children when their life was turned upside down. As a bystander during a robbery, he was hit six times with stray bullets instantly paralyzing him throughout much of his body. Due to poor medical conditions and infection his leg was amputated after a few months. Two years later he now lives with his parents and two children, sold his home to pay medical expenses, and has been quite a burden on his family. Having a wheelchair now will help him find meaningful work to provide for his family. It has been very difficult physically and mentally, but his family now has HOPE for a brighter future.
A $150 wheelchair can change not only a life, but can change a family, a school, and a community!
